Great Thanksgiving Weekend

My wife and I loved the Morris House Hotel. When we checked in we were given a quick tour which ended with fresh cookies and a free glass of wine at the bar. Our room was comfortable and beautiful, and other than a little trash collection in the morning, it was so quiet you couldn't tell you were staying in the city. The location was perfect, we were within walking dinner to all of our dinner reservations and shows. We will definitely stay there again.

Great location, staff, facilities, decor, dining...

Great historic boutique hotel, one block from historic sights. Beautifully kept up with a real sense of its long presence in the city. Walbert was a wonderful help as was the day manager. Loved the breakfast quiches, fruit, bacon pastries, cheese and juice selections each morning. Gourmet restaurant also on property. We will be back!

Great time!

The hotel is beautiful, the food is great and the service/ staff are friendly and helpful. The MHH is in a great location and offers a lot!

Wonderful, quaint B&B in Philadelphia

The Morris House Hotel was fantastic! What a beautiful, historic building. The rooms were huge and gorgeous and the service was great. The hotel is in a great neighborhood as well. The only complaint I had is that the breakfast only went from 7-10am and there was a pretty limited selection. I would've liked to have seen the breakfast go until 11 and to have more options especially for how expensive the room was. Other than that, I would highly recommend this beautiful hotel!

Nice little hotel with friendly staff. Great alternative to chain hotels. Good location for exploring historic Philadelphia with many sites within easy walking distance. Also, has an enclosed courtyard for dining or sitting.

A charming, quaint hotel!

This historic hotel was very quaint. The service was excellent. The location was great for sightseeing - within walking distance of major popular spots. My room was cozy and well appointed. The outdoor garden area is just beautiful and I would have spent more time there had it not been for the extremely hot weather during my stay. The adjoining M Restaurant had excellent service and great food.

Very nice—Would definitely stay again.

The staff was very friendly, and check-in included a brief tour and history of the hotel. The room was very nice—spacious, but with a cozy decor. Nicely situated, just a short walk from Chinatown in one direction and the South Street area in another.

This B&B is excellent in every way. It is a meticulously restored home in the historic section of Philadelphia. It is extraordinarily clean and the service is superb.

An elegant surprise in the center of town.

I've stayed at the Morris House Hotel several times and each time I am more impressed with the beautiful and elegant restoration work that was done on this property. It is gorgeous. The rooms are large and perfectly decorated, the service is excellent and their new on-site restaurant is superb. And you can't beat the location...right in the center of town, close to everything. Say hello to Angel Diaz, their charming and helpful innkeeper, for me!
